competitive in science and engineering? our digital producer is here, and he's bringing all of your live feedback into the program. america was the first and only country to put a machine on the moon, and now people are concerned we're behind in technology. >> we have given america the cronut. alejandro says: christina gave us a different stat. viewers at home, you are the third hosts of the show, and all of your comments shape and drive this discussion. so give us a comment and we'll try our best to get it on the air. >> science and technology drives the global marketplace, but is america prepared to meet that and stay competitive? countries like china are catching up, in as soon as and technology and math. and you'll hear that a lot in the show tonight. in the u.s., 38% of young adults who start off majoring in fields graduate with something completely different, and those who do for tend to be white and mail. women account for 18% of the field. and blacks and latinos make up only 12%. so has the u.s. lost it's passion for science and technology or do we need a more innovative way to r
shutdown. the shutdown would have a last being effect on science and nature. mary woolly is the head of the largest national health and research foundation. what are some of the most critical programs affected? >> there's certainly more than one. when science signs is shut down and we put it on ice it will have ramifications that will last for a long time. think about ice and you think about antarctica, right? science in antarctica has lost almost a whole season of opportunity because this is the time when research on biology on earth sciences on astronomy, on species, including one species of penguin, could not go forward. we don't know how much could not go forward thip. science is not something you can ask nature to go back and do it over again, it's 24/seven, we've missed out and on quite a lot. government was shut down? alzheimer's wasn't shut down, cancer wasn't shut down, diabetes wasn't shut down. and a lot of the research that is going to give us answers, that trouble every family in this country, everybody around the world has setback in ways that we won't feel the full eff
's our team. now let's do some science. >> hi guys welcome back to another week of techknow where we're going to show you some pretty fun innovations in science. i'm here with marita and rachelle. hi, nasa seekers mission, this is a gc-8, loaded with millions of dollars of equipment measuring the air as we're flying through the gulf. it was a pretty incredible experience. let's take a look. ists 7:30 in the morning and -- it's 7:30 in the morning. and hangar 9 is buzzing with excitement. >> any last questions about what we're going to be doing today? save jet. >> from a distance our plane looks like any other. but close up you can see it's anything but. i'm minutes away from boarding this plain with nasa experimentalists. it is a nasa gc-8, trying to measure the pollution and the atmosphere. it's a three pronged attack. the signs of the tc 8, after the u 2 spy plane. the er 2 application is a sight to see. everything about it has the feeling of a flight to space. the men who fly the plane undergo special training and wear a pressurized flight soot. several weather probes collect the

? >> the philosophy of science. would ask them, if you want to give a new function on your computer. we were talking a lot about the information. and they would immediately give up the techie generation. a program, construction, software, all of which are correct answers. well, it turns out that the same thing is true in life. if you want to generate life in the first place, you have to have affirmation in the form of dna, proteins that make life bible. you want to build a new form of life, and this is the darling is trying to do, try to explain, you also have to have actually been some digital code. you need tissues, organs, their for new types of cells. each new type of cell, new protein, the proteins require information. so the cambrian explosion is not just an explosion of new forms of structure, new animals but an explosion of affirmation, of digital code and other forms of biological information. and what i show in the book is that natural selection and random mutation is a singularly inept mechanism for generating new information. mutation cameron and changes in code, we know from our own exp
give him to run for his many i have written 10 books after the selfish gene and it is all about science but the science fair about is pretty much implying the fiesta. this book is about my early life. university life so i suppose i just wanted to tell the story of my life if anybody is interested how i lost religious faith is in there but it should not dominate. >> host: where ever you go. people always want to ask questions about the universe and the meaning of life. are you tired of that? >> guest: making a theism respectable i don't think it is that exactly but what we did do in the book people tell me that the grand illusion gave them the courage to come out and in some cases it converted them but otherwise the already were atheists the gate and the courage to come out that suggests there are a helluva lot more than anybody realizes. white the emperor new clothes you fact that nobody actually speaks out but enough of them did then suddenly they all would with the tipping point the fact. >> host: you were talking members of congress out about a fall 535 members there's only one that
in this country, political science. he read a lot about politics, government, economics, history, and how they were melded into this new thing called political science. and after wilson realized he was not making a living as an attorney in atlanta he decided he was going to go to graduate school. one very good thing came out of his atlanta years and that was he had one big piece of business as a lawyer, and that was something that his family had thrown to him. there was some piece of property that needed some contracts done, legal work. so he went to georgia where he was tying up loose ends and where he, a presbyterian ministers son met a woman named ellen lou erickson who was a presbyterian ministers daughter. the two of them fell in love and had a real old-fashioned 19th century court should. a little more extensive than most because wilson, although he was desperate to marry her realize did not have the resources to do it just yet. they had an engagement that went on for several years during which time they exchanged thousands of letters. no, let me restate this. they exchanged thousan
. this is a show about science by scientists. let's check out our team of hard-core nerds. tonight she's on the front lines of a devastating wildfire as a drone takes command of the skies over yosemite. crystal is a molecular neuroscience. she goes to the streets of seattle and santa cruz for a look at how science might stop crime before it happens. lindsay is an ex-cia operator. tonight she shows us how mushrooms might one day replace styrofoam packages. i'm phil torres and i'm an entomologist. i study insects in the rain forests of peru. that's our team. now, let's do some science. >>> it has been another fantastic week of science on the road. we've got crystal, lindsay and rita here. we're going to start with you. you were basically a very high-tech firefighter for a week. tell me about this. >> that's right. i was on a story that followed how we use unmanned aircraft to fight the rim fire at yosemite. let me show you. here it is. it's a very unusual-looking piece of technology. it almost looks like an alien insect, and they have it in a hangar. essentially they fly it up to yosemit
and all of them are about science but the science they are about implies atheism and it's sort of in played in them. this book is about my early life in the childhood school days university life and early career. so i suppose i just wanted to that tell the story of my life. there is a story of how i lost religious faith but it doesn't dominate nor should it. >> host: do you find -- i know wherever you go and there are crowds and q&a and people always want to ask you questions about religion and the universe and why are we here in the meaning of life. are you tired of that? >> guest: what i think we didn't do and people tell me in the book signings which are very gratifying they tell me that the god delusion gave them the courage to come out and in some cases it converted them but in rather more cases bear really where atheist and it gave them the courage to came out which suggests to me that they're a hell of a lot more atheists in this country than anybody realizes and it's the emperors new clothes effect but no one speaks out and says they are an atheist and yet if enough of
is it's all about math and science, and this is a way to get kids interested in that. tell us how numbers contribute to weather forecasting. >> well, it's all about computer models. what we input into the models to tell us what the forecast is going to bring, numbers, temperatures, drop in pressure, barometer. numbers are important when it comes to forecasting, and there's a lot of math, and this is a lot of science. we know as we get kids into schools these days if they're going to compete on the world stage, they have to know math, science, technology and engineering. so those two, math and science, that's what meteorology is all about. so if we can get them interested at a young age and think it's fun, maybe they'll in turn think that math and science is cool -- gerri: become an engineer, meteorologist, who knows? you know, the job openings, this is numbers from 2016, 16% of bachelor degrees will specialize in s.t.e.m., but the number of jobs that are open, one million. so we're not producing enough kids to actually do these jobs. anything we can do to inspire them is a positiv
quarterback in the trunk of the car. >>> the days of having to go to the science theater to see a movie is ancient history. we take a look at some of the options. >> gravity was one of the biggest movies of the weekend, raking in over $55 million at the box office. with lots of 3d imax screenings, it was literally the biggest movie of the weekend playing on extra large screens across the country. several movie goers paid extra to see it. the film's director said east max inspired him when making the movie. >> i can't see you anymore. >> but there are two different kinds of imax screens and chances are you saw gravity on the not so good kind. when you think imax, you think giant screens, screens that are several stories tall. over the last several years imax has been slapping their names on screens that are slightly bigger than a traditional screen instead of building them specifically like the ones at science centers, they're retrofitting existing theaters. critics call these lie max but they make up the bulk of them. for example, there are nine imax theaters in arizona but only three a

those who know me well. as an english teacher major and writer, i have no experience in computer science. i avoided all math and got through college without taking any of it and didn't pass calculous and the answer to that is simple. it's that the book captivated me enough for the math and not for some of the more sensational moments of the life, but because of the story and what he accomplished, and if you ask me to explain the algorithms today, i can give you a broad explanation, but i can't tell you what's at the heart of them, and people who worked with him or work at the company today still can't, some of them. that gives you an idea how incredible the math was behind what i'm going to tell you a little bit about. so the story of danny really is a come flex one. he had all facets in life that i found difficult to capture in a character study and as a writer, and i'm just going to read a little bit from the preface of the book because that gives you an idea of the seemingly desperate parts of his life and what made the story in some ways for me saying truth is stranger than fiction,
as sharp an eye as anyone on that. so it has to be about data, it has to be about science. science. we had four words that dominate our domestic agenda, national agenda, it would be science, science, science, and science. science, that means knowledge, data, evidence about how the air we breathe and water we drink, evidence about how we grow our economy through through innovation and entrepreneurial spirit and that's about investments in science and technology. it's about the health of our country, it's about investments in life sciences. science is an answer to our prayers but some in their caucus seem to think it's one or the other, science or faith. no, no. science to defend our country, with the best technology possible. when we say we're not going to invest in education, redeuce our deficits, slow the rate of growth of the national science foundation or the national institutes of health, we are doing a grave disservice to our country. so in every way, evidence, science, data, let's know what we're talking about. then again, i, hen back to not that long ago when we would be negotiating
anyone on that. it has to be about data, about science, science. he had four words to describe which dominated the table for our domestic agenda, for our national agenda, it would be science, science, science, and science. science -- that means knowledge, data, evidence, about how the air we breathe, water we drink him about how we grow the economy, and that is about investments in science and technology. it is about the health of our thetry's investments in life sciences, national institutes of health. science is an answer to our prayers, but for some reason some in their caucus that it is one or the other, science or faith -- no, no, and science to defend our country with the best technology possible. so when we say we are not going to invest in education and we are going to cost -- reduced our investments in the national science of foundation and national institutes of health, we are doing a great disservice to our country. in every way, evidence, science, a, let's know what we are talking about. we would all say we can proceed down this path if we all stipulate to a number. did t
. as an english major and brighter come i don't have any background in computer science or math. i actually avoided all math and somehow to get through college without taking any of it and didn't pass calculus. so the answer to that is really simple. it is the book captivated me not for the mass and not for some of the more moments obtain a fact that because of what he accomplished. if you asked me to explain algorithms today, i can give you a very broad explanation, but i still can't tell you what is at the heart of them. people who work with him still can't come as some of them. so it just gives you an idea of just how incredible the math wiz behind what i'm going to tell you a little bit about. so the story of danny lewin is a complex one. at first i found really difficult to capture in a character study and as a writer. i'm just going to read a little bit from the preface of the book to that will give you an idea of these seemingly disparate parts of his life and what made the story in some ways for me, stranger than fiction. danny story at the leap from the very beginning was almost mo

[♪ music ] >> hi, guys, we are back here at "techknow" for another week of amazing stories and screen and innovation. we'll get started with this "heart in a box." check it out, this is an actual beating heart outside of the body. this is seriously the most amazing thing i've ever seen and touched. let's check out the story. >> when it comes to heart transplants, it's always a race against time. we've all seen it on tv. when a donor heart becomes available, medical teams must move quickly. the organ is removed and preserved by placing it in ice. the heart must arrive at the recipient's hospital within six hours that's because the ice damages the heart making it unfit for transplant. in this will keep hearts warm and beating. this will be a major break through in transplant history. the first human transatlantic took place in a hospital in south africa in 1967. since then it has become a fairly routine proceed cur proch 2,000 happening in the united states. there is one aspect to the process that has remained the same. yep, getting the he

[ applause ] thank you. and welcome to the new "living well with montel." you know, today we're talking about the vital role supplements play in our health. supplements have been around for a long time. the problem is most of them were formulated more than 50 years ago, and a lot has changed in a half a century. now, would you really want to use something that's 50 years old? you wouldn't rely on a 50-year-old car, or you wouldn't want to watch tv on something this old, right? or what about a cellphone? would you rather use this one or one like this? the answer's obvious. so, why would you trust your health to a 50-year-old supplement that might be doing you more harm than good? we're abou

, national science foundation and other catalysts of american innovation and medical progress simply contravenes common sense and our nation's prospects for economic stability going forward. medical progress should be an immutable, american priority. in our polls, commissioned by research america, a majority of american says they would pay more in taxes if they knew that would go forward medical research. that's how important it is to americans. stalling that research now through sequestration or the kind of reform that, again, undermines something we have too long taken for granted while other nations are ramping it up, will drag our nation down at the very moment we have everything it takes to soar. the interest group that policymakers are not listening to, i would argue, is the american public. the words that policymakers are ignoring, at our peril, is our nation's future. thank you. >> we do have time for questions, i just want to make one point which i think is the unifying theme that you hear if this diverse group is people want our leaders to govern and we want them to lead. a

training in math and science training. right now i think one of the biggest dangers to the united states of america is there is no one to replace the baby boomers that are engineers or technicians. even with a high unemployment rate in our country, there are job openings for mechanics, electricians. they pay a lot more money than a lot of four-year college degrees at this point. i think we as a country have misled young people in saying the only way to success is to have a four year college degree. i think that is a great way to success, but i think another to get a two technical degree or certification. very similar to what you see in germany the past 20-20 five years. well respected, seen as prestigious. i think we need to do the same thing in america, and our economy has to have it. companies have to have the next how toion understand and fix things in innovate something. we are not talking about that enough area i think we got caught up in a little academic elitism thinking everyone had to have a masters degree. the economy does not even -- need everyone to have a masters degree. >>

it for our children. but your son has cancer! wait a minute. christian science. is that, is that that thing all them gaybo hollywood actors do to keep their stuff away from other guys' butts? don't you understand? scotty needs help. and he'll get it... through faith. that's right. we will heal him with the power of prayer. y-you can't just let them just walk out of here! oh, i think they'll be back. are those their keys? no, they're my keys. and they said because of their faith, they don't believe in medicine. mom, i think there's a lot of religions that do that. well, that may be, meg, but that poor little baby has cancer, and they're just gonna take him home and pray over him?! well, that's what they do. they believe that disease is just an illusion. and the only way to fight it is to make your faith stronger. illusions?! you want to talk about illusions?! if you die tomorrow, you think we're gonna be devastated! but you know what?! we're just gonna go out and buy another dog! and maybe this dog will fetch a stick and bring me my slippers instead of prattling on about the pros and cons of
to have the disease, their care givers, and if we do not proceed with the science we need over 13 americans who have alzheimer's and roll over 40 million americans will be their care givers and less than two generations. currently dementia cost the american people over 200 billion per year just for caregiving and we invest a paltry roughly 500 million in trying to arrest the disease or reverse its tide. it is a ridiculously small investment, and it is one that sequestration and roads. so who agrees that we have to take more dramatic steps to fight alzheimer's, to invest in the science the will provide as a catalyst to reverse the trajectory of this disease? well, i will tell you. it is president obama and n.i.h. director francis collins but also house majority leader eric cantor, house to party caucus under michele bachmann and former house speaker newt gingrich joined and determination to initiate alzheimer's research funding by it several senators, in fact, the entire congress, every last member of congress have voted unanimously about two years ago to about the national alzheim
